Are affordable boats beginning to get a look-in again at London? After a long and arid period at ExCeL when bankers’ bonus boats seemed to dominate much of the space and all of the press attention, perhaps the recession is starting to change the kind of craft and products we might hope to find at this year’s Tullett Prebon London Boat Show, 8-17 January. For those of us who have to get by on less than a 5-figure salary, boats well worth a look are – above, left to right – on Cornish Crabbers' stand NO11: the 22’ (6.7m) Crabber, 19’ (5.8m) Shrimper and 17’ (5.2m) Crabber 17; on Honnor Marine's stand NO47A, the 19’ (5.8m) Cape Cutter, 15’6” (4.7m) Devon Dabber and 14’9” (4.5m) Devon Scaffie; and on stand NO41 Swallow Boats’ 20’ (6m ) – or maybe 23’ (7m) – BayCruiser. Also look out for Nestaway’s ingenious14’ (4.3m) sectional sail and oar dayboat on Stand NO58J. Owners of smaller boats, old and new, have been taking electric propulsion much more seriously since Torqeedo came on the scene and they are promising something new and rather special on Stand NO33J. New for boatbuilders at the show, Robbins Timber will have their neat 't & g' effect plywood for trad-looking bulkheads and deckheads on Stand NO19A and Wessex Resins & Adhesives will be launching a trio of versatile WEST System G/Flex toughened epoxy adhesives on Marine & Industrial's Stand NO18E. See listing below for advance ticket information.
